    This makes me sad, but to tbf I could see most of the NBA players saying the same things. They all have their brands deeply invested in China. They’re all owned by China. The only difference is Harden has to say something because it has to do with the rockets. The rest of the NBA players will probably try to avoid answering those questions.

    I doubt any of these players even know about the HK situation...none of them will speak up in favor of HK

    Harden is dragged into this because he’s a Houston Rocket...u won’t hear sh*t from someone on another team

    he shouldn’t have to be speaking on something like this in the 1st place...Harden isn’t involved in politics, and now u got him addressing something international

    This board is just flooded with crap at the moment. This team didn't need this to pile on all the other.... Only so many times you can watch the 94 and 95 NBA Finals to get back to that happy place.

    Loved Harden when he was first drafted by OKC and even more thrilled when he became a rocket.
    After 2008 economic crisis Greek protesters set fire on banks and some poor bank employees were burnt alive. Imagine GM of Rockets showed those protesters support back then.
    No matter what the Greek or HongKong protesters were fighting for, if they violently attacks those with different opinions or beliefs, they are criminals.

    I'm really worried about the psyche of the team and players are they going to be able to contend with all this piled on?

    The whole country and nation was protesting for years so if Morey showed his support he would be welcomed.
    The death of these innocent empoyees was an accident.

    If Morey said good job killing innocent people then he would be a sociopath.

    tell those who got burnt alive an accident. free those who set fire protesting and support them. may those protests happen again and again in Greece. nice logic.

    Joe Tsai took a bus and just drove it all over Morey

    Silver ain’t siding with Morey on this one

    I haven’t seen a single owner pledge their support for Morey, and they won’t because they don’t want any problems

    u won’t see players pledge support for Morey because they got brands to protect plus most probably have no clue about what’s going on in HK or care...the same can be said for the overwhelming majority of people in the United States and fans of the NBA...it’s really only Rockets fans talking about this heavy because it directly affects the franchise...if this was happening to another franchise, we’d probably have 1 thread in the DISH and 1 in the D&D and that’s it, and once basketball really starts, most fans in the NBA will have moved on if they even cared in the 1st place...that’s the situation as I see it

    the NBA isn’t about to lose all that China money, especially not for Morey

    all Harden knows is that China is angry because of something Daryl tweeted...u can tell he has no clue about HK like 99% of NBA players and most of America

    he’s made to apologize because the Rockets and Adidas are affected

    Bron won’t say sh*t. Where’s Steve Kerr at? Will Pop say something? Cuban? He loves talking, but I ain’t heard him when it comes to something like this. Calling Trump a bum or criticizing him is easy and isn’t something that would significantly affect their brand or pockets. Angering all of China is entirely different.

    we can get it back to the 90s
    where it was purely about the Houston Rockets
    the city of Houston
    it's fans
    it's streets
    it's stripclubs

    adidas was going to be boycotted along with the rockets. Trying to save face for a guy that won't apologize.

    Harden bent the knee!

    Traitor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Screw him and screw the NBA.

    Go play in China. I hope he chokes on their "money" while he's on his knees.

    It’s very easy to understand.

    Both he and Russ have to go to China because they have shoes contracts and other personal sponsors.

    Morey doesn’t need to give a fork personally.

    Morey can take all the heat and which he should and hence he took the stand in his ‘announcement ‘.

    But Harden and Russ are the one that will be on the TV once this thing fading out.

    And it was weak!

    Pathetic. I am done with Harden. He is a traitor to this country and only loves money.
